Lovely Lili challenge – add sparkle!




Morning lovely crafters, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’re all having a nice Sunday

It’s a gorgeous day here today, I ended up going back to bed yesterday but this morning I feel much better so I’m going to take Manny for a walk later and blow away some cobwebs; I haven’t moved out of the house for 3 days!


It’s time for a Lovely Lili Challenge over at The Ribbon Girl blog today    …and it’s a brilliant one that you’ll all love joining in with   …ADD SPARKLE


There are prizes up for grabs from Lili Of The Valley and The Ribbon Girl so worth having a go, you just need to use a Lili of the Valley image or sentiment on your card or project


As always there is some amazing inspiration from the design team so do go and see what they made, and you can also find out the full details on there too





02 November - add sparkle


There’s loads of sparkle which doesn’t really show, I used frantage and stardust stickles

I used one of the Lili of the Valley art pads (party and cake) Always and Forever papers and a sentiment from set 6 Dreamy Days


All the other gorgeous goodness is from The Ribbon Girl (of course!)


Flatback pearls

2 row diamante trim

Rose organza ribbon


Liquid pearls

Mini glossy accents

Velvet ribbon

Topstitching thread


I had a bit of trouble taking a decent picture of this card, the glossy accents on the balloons and the mirror confused the camera as it was so reflective under the light and I couldn’t get it to focus where I wanted!


Hope you like it, enjoy the rest of your weekend x

    Thanks for the lovely comment you left today! In my defence, it was not me with the hangover, but hubby (who doubles as my chauffeur, lol). I haven't even been drunk in years and years! :-S
    And much as I adore LOTV, I'm thinking £400 for a stamp is maybe a touch steep? lol. Poor Richard. x
